15 Best Restaurants in Chinatown Bangkok

Yaowarat is really a foodie paradise, and finding a good restaurant in Bangkok, Chinatown, should not be difficult. However, there are many restaurants and street food vendors that you should read about so you know the places you should not miss. Here, we will look at the top 15 best restaurants in Chinatown Bangkok, their food, and their services.

While Yaowarat is a foodie haven, some famous restaurants and street food sellers are closed on Mondays. We do not advise going to Yaowarat (Chinatown Bangkok) on a Monday unless you have no other choice.

Best Restaurants in Chinatown Bangkok

Bangkok is home to delicious Chinese dishes. Below are some of the best restaurants in Chinatown Bangkok, where are sure to get delicious Chinese food.

1. Hua Seng Hong

Hua Seng Hong

Hue Seng Hong tops our list of the best restaurants in Chinatown Bangkok. It has been serving over 200 different Chinese, Thai, Hong Kong, and fusion cuisines in Yaowarat for almost fifty years. It is the ideal location for experiencing Chinatown through food.

Roasted Duck, Baked Spiced Goose Feet with Noodles, Stir-Fried Sea Crab with Curry Powder, and Barbecued Pork are highly recommended meals, but there are many other excellent things to discover on their extensive menu.

2. Nai Mong Hoi Thod

Nai Mong Hoi Thod

Nai Mong Hoi Thod is one of Bangkok’s top local restaurants. This famed restaurant serves Hoi Thod, an oyster omelet.

When visiting Bangkok, travelers want to immerse themselves in the local cuisine, and we believe that Nai Mong Hoi Thod meets that requirement. There is no better Hoy Tod in Bangkok, and possibly not in Thailand.

The menu is very clear, with guests able to choose between crispy and plain oyster omelets or mussel omelets in a variety of sizes.

3. Siang Ki Khao Tom Pla

Siang Ki Khao Tom Pla

Siang Ki Khao Tom Pla is one of the most popular restaurants in Chinatown Bangkok that serves amazing Khao Tom Pla (Thai rice soup).

Although this soup may not appear appealing to outsiders at first glance, we strongly advise you give it a try. The soup tastes fantastic thanks to an old family secret, with an amazing broth, topped with fried garlic, and loads of shellfish.

Although their main meal is the rice soup with fish, Khao Tom Pla, you will love the rice soup with oysters, Khao Tom Hoy Nangrom.

4. Si Morakot

Si Morakot

Si Morakot, which is featured in the Michelin Guide, is one of two restaurants in Bangkok Chinatown that serve Khao Moo Daeng we recommend.

Khao Moo Daeng is a popular Chinese-influenced Thai cuisine that consists of boiled rice topped with crispy pork and sauce. This non-spicy, slightly sweet but largely savory meal is a popular lunchtime option.

5. Nakhon Sanook

Nakhon Sanook

Nakhon Sanook is a tiny street food restaurant and one of the best restaurants in Bangkok’s Chinatown that is famous for its Khao Moo Daeng Moo Grob.

Despite the fact that you sit at a table in a narrow alley, it earns a mention in this post because the food is just outstanding. Nakhon Sanook has been a family-run business for almost 70 years, thus the Khao Moo Dang Moo Grob is amazing.

Khao Moo Dang Moo Grob is a rice dish with crispy pork and red roasted pig, topped with a Chinese sauce called Siu Haau, which is similar to barbecue sauce.

6. Xie Lao Yee Hor

Xie Lao Yee Hor is a small, local restaurant that serves delicious Khao Moo Daeng Goon Chiang Kai Ma Toom, which is similar to the previously suggested Khao Moo Daeng Moo Grob from Nakhon Sanook.

The main distinction is that this version of Khao Moo Daeng is accompanied by sweet Chinese sausage and grilled pork. Also, since Khao Moo Daeng isn’t fully drenched in sweet sauce, you can really taste the pork.

7. Ann Guay Tiew Kua Gai

Ann Guay Tiew Kua Gai

Ann Guay Tiew Kua Gai is one of the Michelin-recommended restaurants in Chinatown Bangkok. Ann Guay Tiew Kua Gai is unique in that it serves the tastiest Chicken Fried Noodles in Bangkok.

This savory delight is served at an old restaurant, which is to be expected in a place like the Yaowarat.

A bowl of their specialty fried Noodles with chicken costs only 50 THB, but additional proteins, including as shrimp, squid, ham, and pork, are also available at various prices.

We recommend the Fried Noodles with chicken and Runny Egg because the egg yolk adds just the proper amount of flavor.

8. T&K Seafood

T&K Seafood

T&K Seafood is Bangkok Chinatown’s most popular seafood restaurant, located smack in the center of Yaowarat Road. For many years, this restaurant has a variety of Thai seafood meals.

The restaurant, like many seafood restaurants in Chinatown Bangkok, opens its doors at 17:00, and the three-story structure quickly fills up.

As a result, if you want to experience a more relaxing, non-rushed vibe, we recommend visiting this place after 21:00.

The menu is extensive, with every type of seafood available. The Steamed White Snapper in Spicy Lime Soup and the Stir-Fried Crab with Yellow Curry are two menu favorites.

Odean Noodle is a tiny restaurant in Bangkok Chinatown that specializes in two dishes: Fried Prawn Wonton and noodles with Crab Claw.

While there are a few more tasty options available, such as the Prawn Wonton with Roasted Pork. The biggest draw for residents, though, is to eat their homemade noodles with a crab claw.

Visitors can select from a wide range of crab claws with varying weights and pricing. A bowl of these dry noodles will set you back between 150 – 550 THB.

10. Kwan Sew Kee Restaurant

Kwan Sew Kee Restaurant is on the other side of Yaowarat Road and specializes in Dim Sum and Roasted Duck. This eatery is not popular with tourists due to its location, but it is quite famous among locals because of its excellent dim sum.

Despite not being in the heart of Bangkok’s Chinatown, this restaurant has the real feel that you expect from restaurants in Bangkok’s Chinatown.

There are twenty-two different kinds of Dum Sum available, but if you arrive too late, some of the popular ones could already be sold out. We recommend you visit this restaurant during lunchtime.

Other items, like the popular Egg Noodle and Wonton with Roasted Duck, are available throughout the day.

11. Daeng Racha Hoi Thot

Daeng Racha Hoi Thot

Daeng Racha Hoi Thot is a lesser-known Hoy Tod specialist in Bangkok Chinatown, yet it warrants a spot on this list of the top restaurants in Bangkok Chinatown.

This local outdoor restaurant is actually a conglomeration of various street food vendors, the most popular of which is Daeng Racha Hoi Thot. We recommend the Crispy Fried Omelette with Mussels, which is substantially less expensive than the famed Nai Mong Hoy Thod.

Keep in mind that this restaurant runs out of oysters and mussels shortly after lunch, so go early.

12. Nai Sow

Nai Sow is one of the top local restaurants in Chinatown Bangkok that delivers cheap and delicious meals

The spicy pork is Nai Sow’s signature dish and a favorite among spicy cuisine fans. The grilled fatty pig is covered with a handmade spicy sauce, and it is also available with grilled beef, however, we prefer the pork.

Fried Oysters, Fried Sea Bass with Spicy Curry Paste, and five Fried are among the other delectable Bangkok food selections at Nai Sow.

13. Jok Toe Deaw

Jok Toe Deaw

Jok Toe Deaw is a Michelin-recommended restaurant in Bangkok Chinatown, located in the heart of Chinatown’s fresh market.

The restaurant is famed for its shrimp dumplings, which is exactly what most people come for, though many Chinese-Thai families eat here because Jok Toe Deaw’s menu includes a sort of family buffet.

You can still get their delectable shrimp dumplings with roasted garlic bits and soy sauce.

14. Chong Kee Pork Satay

Chong Kee Pork Satay

As previously stated, we would recommend Chong Kee Pork Satay in Chinatown Bangkok, which specializes in satay.

Chong Kee Pork Satay, as the name suggests, specializes in pork satay, while liver satay is also available. A plate of ten sticks with toast will cost you 85 THB, and the satay comes with pickles, chilies, and peanut sauce.

15. Nahim Cafe x Handcraft

Nahim Cafe x Handcraft

Nahim Cafe x Handcraft is a small cafe that is unlike any of the other restaurants mentioned here.

However, choosing Nahim Cafe x Handcraft demonstrates how different the cafes and eateries in Chinatown Bangkok have become in recent years. Authentic eateries, rooftop bars, and even beautiful caf├ęs such as Nahim Cafe x Handcraft can be found.

Expect a coffee, Brownie Waffle, or Strawberry & Nutella Waffle rather than local cuisine.

Summary

That concludes our list of the best restaurants in Chinatown Bangkok. We hope you like our choices and are inspired to embark on a food adventure in one of Bangkok’s most fascinating food districts.

We are sure you will have a culinary treat of a lifetime.
